Hey guys, I have had soooooo many nice comments about ‘A Little Black Dress‘ post – that can be found on the fashion page.
I wasn’t going to make that a feature because I had seen a set of those type of dresses on the catwalk in different colours and styles. I was planning to post the collection online – and another piece of the collection was called ‘A Pink And White Dress, but a lot of people preferred the black dress instead.
It was not until I read a post from someone (I will not say the name) that said they couldn’t wait for more posts.
So here it is. will posting pictures of the black dresses that I like, and I will tell you how I would wear it, what with etc.
You can also send in some of your pictures of you in black dresses. You never know, I might feature you in a post called EXCLUSIVE BLACK DRESSES. (That isn’t up and running yet as I haven’t received any photos…. because I’ve only just started).
Anyway, I will be creating a unique pintrest board for A Little Black Dress, so you won’t miss any of the pictures that I put on here.
So here is the 2nd picture of my favorite black dress. (if you want to see No. 1, visit the RV Fashion Station page, and scroll down to you see a post called ‘A Little Black Dress’.)

Now I know that you can’t really see the picture very well, but I think that you don’t really need to see something to understand it.
I really liked this picture, seeing as it’s almost Autumn (it will be Autumn on the 22nd of September according to my Uncle- probably right though) and after autumn comes Winter. (obviously.) This is a nice A/W dress and faux fur at the skirt of the dress indicates this. The leafless reeds also show that it is on the verge of becoming Winter.
I would probably never where this dress because I am quite short. (if 5ft 4 is short then count me in.) But I probalby would wear it if I was going to a special up-do where it was fancy dress or something.
I think I would wear it with a nice sparkly hair band with frost crystals traveling down the side and up my hair. If it was Autumn I would wear a nice black hairband with bits of brown on them for the leaves.
I would have my hair in a high bun, and have the ends really curly so it just drops down on my shoulders. I would make sure that my hair was really flat at the front with no fringe, and I would use some Aloe Vera Gelly (can be a substitute for hair gel) and apply some to give my hair a shinier texture. It also helps it to lay flat when you brush over it when it’s already in a hair bubble.
This look is quite sleek and stylish because it looks like you’ve just been in a frosty place and all the snowflakes have melted into your hair.
This is my favorite part, as well as having completed doing my hair instead of the process of doing it. I would recommend that you have a clutch bag. It could be silver, brown, or black with lots of sparkles and/or some crystals going down the middle of it where it clips together. This would look really elegant if it was a sharp, solid, rectangle shape instead of the flimsy or curved unstructured type.
For my shoes I would obviously wear black heels. I have a nice pair with lots of bows going up them. I wear them very often on weekends and special occasions. But if I was to wear that dress above, I would think about investing in a new pair.
You could wear a cute cottoned white cardigan, a shawl, or just go bare shoulders. It doesn’t matter what you do, just as long as you rock it!
Thanks for taking the time to read this incredibly long post. I hope it’s what you wanted and if not, I would love some suggestions on where I could improve.
Thanks ever soo much and stay tuned for more!!
